Strait settling in after career comes full circle

Jets put a waiver claim in several years back, but were not successful

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Go back - waaaay back to the winter of 2013. It was then when General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff and the Winnipeg Jets took an interest in Brian Strait, one of the newest recruits in this year's edition of the club.

After spending more than four years with the team that drafted him in the third round seven years prior, the defenceman's time as a Pittsburgh Penguin had come to an end after being placed on waivers.

Cheveldayoff put a claim in hoping to secure the services of the now 28-year-old, but so, too, did the struggling New York Islanders.

Hutchinson has a new look in camp

A new mask, and a turn to the "dark side" for the 26-year old

by Mitchell Clinton @MClinton007 / WinnipegJets.com

It was a new look Michael Hutchinson that took to the ice in training camp today.

With a new two-year contract signed earlier in the summer, Hutchinson had a new mask designed and new dark equipment ordered in for 2016-2017.

"I've been working with the same painter for a few years, and he's unbelievably creative," said the 26-year-old Hutchinson. "I just like something that's simple and easy to see from far away. We talked and we liked how the matte wooden finish worked out a couple years ago. So we decided to go with a matte finish again.

"From there, he just came up with an amazing design and the colours really kind of pop and go with the jersey."

Lemieux out week to week

Prospect took a shot off the foot at the Young Stars Classic

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

Jets prospect Brendan Lemieux did not skate today and is officially week to week with a lower-body injury, according to Assistant Coach Jamie Kompon.

Lemieux suffered the injury during last week's Young Stars Classic in Penticton, B.C., but did play the final two games after taking a shot off the foot in the opener against Calgary.

The winger finished with five shots and 11 penalty minutes in those three games.

Hellebuyck, Pavelec return from World Cup

Both goalies will be battling for the No. 1 job this season

by Mitchell Clinton @MClinton007 / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Connor Hellebuyck will remember the World Cup of Hockey and his Team North America teammates fondly.

"It was ridiculous how fast that team was. It was so fun to watch no matter where you were, bleachers or front row," Hellebuyck said of the exciting under-23 squad. "Just knowing that I got to play with that is a huge honour for me. I'm glad to be a part of that fast team, and to be honest I think we should still be in it. We took five minutes off and it cost us the tourney."

That five minutes happened against Russia, when North America gave up four unanswered goals and ultimately dropped a 4-3 decision. The loss would prove costly, as North America was eliminated from playoff contention with the Russian victory over Finland a couple days later.

Comrie looks to build on successful rookie season

After a whirlwind campaign with the Manitoba Moose, the determined young goalie is ready for more.

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Eric Comrie learned more than he ever thought possible last year.

Now, after a whirlwind campaign with the Manitoba Moose, the determined young goalie is ready for more.

Comrie entered the season as the backup to Connor Hellebuyck, but after he was recalled to the Jets following an injury to Ondrej Pavelec, the 21-year-old became the de facto starter for the team's top affiliate.

Comrie calls it as a "fortunate" turn of events for him, personally, to get such valuable experience in his first pro season, but there was nothing lucky about it. He took the opportunity and ran with it, posting excellent numbers on a young Moose team that finished the year 15 games below .500.

Myers 100% healthy after off-season surgery

The 26-year-old had been dealing with a hip injury for "a couple of years." That is now behind him.

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - For the first time in years, Winnipeg Jets defenceman Tyler Myers is coming into camp 100 percent healthy.

The 26-year-old had been dealing with a hip injury for "a couple of years," but despite maintaining his near 25-minute per-game average in ice time late last season, he was unable to ignore it anymore. The defenceman had a pair of procedures done shortly after playing his last game on Mar. 22, and was then a spectator for the next 18 weeks as his knee, then his hip, fully recovered.

Little & Laine? Veteran excited about the possibility

"He's a special player and that would be a pretty fun guy to have on my wing"

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Bryan Little hasn't even met him yet, but the very idea of centering a line with Patrik Laine is enough to put a smile on his face.

"I've watched him quite a bit at the World Cup and all throughout the summer," Little said. "He's a special player and that would be a pretty fun guy to have on my wing. … But I know that once camp rolls around, everything can get shifted and once the season starts, (the coaches) can play with the combinations all year."

Competition at the forefront on Day 1 at camp

Stafford, Little, Ehlers excited to get started

by Mitchell Clinton @MClinton007 / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG -- Day 1 of training camp may have only been skating tests, but the players know the competition for spots is only beginning.

"I think there is a little bit of a turnover with a lot of young guys, some new guys coming up that are going to have a great opportunity to make a difference in camp here to see where they might end up in the line-up," said veteran Drew Stafford. "It pushes guys to be their best. I think that's what we need to take a step forward as an organization."

Stafford is fresh off his fourth 20+ goal season of his career, and plans to show younger players trying to crack the line-up how to be a pro every day the only way he knows how: By example.

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

Jets prep for Game 2 in Penticton

Rookies Green and Stallard put nerves behind them

by Mitchell Clinton @MClinton007 / WinnipegJets.com

Putting an NHL jersey on for the first time can bring on a lot of emotions.

Nerves, excitement, and anticipation can bundle up inside a player in the minutes leading up to puck drop.

That was the case for 2016 draftees Luke Green and Jordy Stallard.

"I played a few pre-season games in Saint John, but it was nothing like last night," Green said, referring to his QMJHL team, the Saint John Sea Dogs. "It's a lot faster. Guys are all battling for spots in line-ups, you can tell how hungry everyone is."

Jansen Harkins put the Winnipeg Jets prospects on the board in the opening period, but it wouldn't hold up, as the Calgary Flames peppered Jets netminders with 27 shots in the final two periods, en route to a 4-1 Calgary win.

"We have to make some better decisions with the puck. I thought we had a good start to the first and the second. Then we started to make some little plays," said coach Pascal Vincent. "When it's not there, it's not there. That's pro hockey.

"We just have to make smarter decisions overall. But that's the learning process."

World Cup Diary: Blake Wheeler

Team USA forward enjoys relaxing day off Sunday, preparing for next challenge in Team Finland

by Blake Wheeler - Special to NHL.com / NHL.com

We landed in Washington, D.C., late Sunday afternoon and had the rest of the day off. I was able to relax and watch some of the football games that were on. It was nice to get some rest after two tough pretournament games, but I think me and the rest of the guys are excited to ramp things up and get to the real thing.

For now, we are doing our best to get ready for the start of the World Cup.

Playing Team Canada was tough but Team Finland will be a totally different challenge. They play really hard and they always have great goaltending. They also are a very tough defensive team. I think it will be a good challenge to really help us get ready for the tournament. It's the last game before the World Cup starts Saturday, so it should be tough. Guys want to get ready for the real thing and it's going to be here in just a couple days.

The blood coming from his forehead following an altercation that resulted from number 26 defending a teammate.

And then there's the face, bruised and stitched from taking a puck up high, shielded by what players call the 'bird cage', just so he could play that next game.

But today, Wheeler's face was clean-shaven, with a smile went ear to ear, as he pulled on his blue jersey, crested with the captain's 'C'.
